About Champions Retreat

Champions Retreat is the marquee gathering of the community of Certified B Corporations in the U.S. & Canada, partners, and values-aligned people using business as a force for good to deliver on our vision of an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system for all people and the planet. This year’s theme, Humanity at Work, celebrates the human values that fuel our business values and allow us to build community and connection. The first time our B Corp community will gather in person in three years, Champions Retreat 2022 will be an important forum for mobilizing toward collective action around racial equity, climate justice, and a stakeholder-driven economic system.

We’re excited to bring our community together in-person for the first time since 2019 to connect, celebrate, and collaborate at the 2022 Champions Retreat.

When: Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022 to Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022
Where: Loews Hotel, Philadelphia
